Meet Rosie.

The happy girl in these pictures is my friend's (and photographer, by the way) oldest daughter, Isabella. The camera LOVES her! She is one stylish little four year old. So of course, she needed a stylish cowl. When it comes to cowls, it seems like the infinity cowl is still #1 on everyone's must-own list.

Rosie is a loopy infinity scarf with enough length to wrap at least twice around. It is worked flat in an interesting textured stitch pattern. The combination of the provisional cast-on and Kitchener stitch make the cowl appear seamless.

Like Janie, Rosie is knit with Quince and Co.'s Osprey, an aran weight yarn made of 100% American wool. Isabella picked out this cheerful color for her cowl: Peak's Ferry. She just looks fabulous in red.  It is available in both child and adult sizes. The adult sizes takes almost an entire skein of Osprey (about 160 yards) and the child size takes two-thirds of a skein (about 120 yards). I made the adult sized one for her mom as a thank you gift in Nasturtium, a beautiful autumnal orange.

This stylish accessory and vibrant color perfectly match Isabella's energetic personality. What yarn or color will you choose to make your cowl? I'd love to see it in something even softer, like the Fibre Company's Road to China or perhaps Malabrigo Twist?

Here is your chance to win a free copy of Rosie. Leave a comment below sharing what color or different yarn you'd consider for the project. You have ONE WEEK to post a comment. Next Wednesday, November 13, I will select a winner using the online random number generator. Be sure to let me know your Raverly name or email address so that I contact you!


  1. I'd love to try it in handspun. Autumn colors or a bright blue/green would look amazing.

  2. a nice deep purple would be good as well.
